Contemporary society's attitudes to smuggling are explored, and the people who took part in it, their modus operandi, and the commodities they smuggled also are covered. A special chapter is devoted to whiskey smuggling, which even embraces the true story of Whiskey Galore and the topic of US Prohibition. All areas of Scotland that were affected by smuggling are examined, allowing for exploration of specific smuggling locations, operations, and episodes.Hide synopsis
